Kings Ridge 4 Year Letterman

Nichols College *RedShirt

Wheelock College

Coaching Experience:

Every one of my students is different and requires unique attention. I’ve had a wide range of students, including: high schooler’s, college, young beginners, as well as the disabled. My focus always varies depending on what would benefit each student the most. I understand that everything takes time and growth is unique to the person. However, I believe that hard work, time, and focus always gets you to the finish line. The life lessons, connections, and physical/mental aspects of basketball are what really matters. The art of basketball is unique to every person and that’s the approach I take. Creating their own unique masterpiece through hard work and focus.

Ronald D. Jones Jr.

I believe basketball is not just a sport. It’s a journey with the ability to open doors to anything you put your mind to.

My understanding and experience with basketball is unique. I’ve always studied the game and have a high IQ on the court.

Though I do try to push my students out of their comfort zone, we’ll develop a relationship so that the student understands “why” and how it relates to their ultimate goal.

Session Plan:

It’s never a good idea to solely focus on what students are good at.  That will come naturally as a player continually plays and practices. My job is to make someone better and evolve their game.

Guards Are the Key to a Championship Run

October 23, 2013

By: Erik Podell (@CoachEPo) | SAGSports.com

Every low and mid major coach will tell you that guards are a dime a dozen and that post players are impossible to find!

While somewhat true, a dynamic backcourt can be the difference between a NCAA tournament bid and finishing at the

bottom of your league. Over the years, mid major back courts such as Jason Richards and Stephon Curry or Brett Comer

and Bernard Thompson can lead under dogs to deep runs in the NCAA tournament.

Basketball is a guard’s game and most teams will go as far as a quality backcourt duo will take them. Lead guards always

have the ball in their hands and for the most part dictate pace and possession. Elite wings that can knock down shots,

excel in transition, and cause havoc defensively.

Mid major coaches to need to be asking themselves these questions when evaluating guards. Who is the next Andrew

Goudelock? Who is the next Langston Hall? Who is the next Isaiah Canaan? Who is the next Torrey Craig? Who is the

next Saah Nimley?

If you can find hidden gems like the players mentioned above, coaches will be smiling come March. 


Kendall Humphrey (6’0, 2014, Kings Ridge Christian, GA)

There is something to say about a player who is just steady. Humphrey does a little bit of everything and flew under the

radar due to an injury this summer. Kendall takes care of the ball and runs the show. He is a really quick, athletic guard

who pushes tempo, runs offense, and keeps his teammates happy. At the end of a game, Humphrey is a guy who has

8points, 4 rebounds, 5 assists, and 2 steals. He is also an excellent student.
